Unlocking Excellence in Aerospace Manufacturing: Our Cutting-Edge Furnace and Metallurgical Expertise

Inconel 718 Components for Aerospace Propulsion: A Precision Journey

In this photo we show you our furnace, equipped with thermocouples and data acquisition system. This setup is crucial for ensuring the highest quality in the production of parts through metal additive manufacturing.
We are currently processing Inconel 718 components for a propulsion system in the aerospace sector, directly from the printer to the furnace. These critical parts demand mechanical prowess and structural integrity, and our furnace delivers precisely that.

Temperature Curves: Our Obsession with Perfection

At Hypermetal, precision isn’t a buzzword; it’s our DNA. We meticulously record and monitor temperature curves throughout the entire manufacturing process. Why? Because excellence demands nothing less. Our metallurgical engineer, Filipe Silva, oversees every operation, ensuring each piece meets—and exceeds—our rigorous quality standards.

Hypermetal at Space Propulsion Conference, in Glasgow

Hypermetal was represented at Sprace Propulsion Conference, in Glasgow, Scotland, on the 20th to 23rd May 2024, by our CEO Afonso Nogueira. There, we had the honour of being mentioned by Omnidea’s Horárcio Moreira, who spoke about the innovative additive manufactured Cobalt Chrome 25KN engine and all the findings during the its development. The process was a joint effort of Omnidea’s engineering team, along with Hypermetal as a manufaturer and the oversight and support of the European Space Agency – ESA.

EN 9100

Exciting news from Hypermetal!

We are thrilled to announce that we are currently implementing the EN 9100 quality management system for our metal additive manufacturing services.
We expect to have the Quality Management System certified by an internationally accredited certification entity in a few months.

At Hypermetal, we are committed to delivering the highest quality metal additive manufacturing solutions to our clients, and implementing the EN 9100 standard is an important step towards achieving this goal. This internationally recognized standard specifies the requirements for a quality management system in the aerospace industry.

By implementing the EN 9100 standard, we are able to ensure that our products and services consistently meet the high standards demanded by the aerospace industry, and that we are continually improving our processes and procedures to provide our clients with the best possible solutions.

We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional metal additive manufacturing services with the highest level of quality assurance.

Hypermetal is sponsoring the 4th Doctoral Congress in Engineering

We are very proud to announce that we are sponsoring the 4th Doctoral Congress in Engineering. The event will be held on the 28th to 29th of June, 2021 fully online.

DCE21 is an event organized by FEUP with 13 symposiums about different areas of engineering. It is always an excellent opportunity for doctoral students, of the several areas of engineering, to discuss their on-going research with peers, professors and industry/companies. It is also great for potential industry partners to contact a broad audience of engineers which will soon be looking to move on to the industry.

Safety and Environment in Additive Manufacturing Facilities

At the beginning of the year we had the opportunity to participante in a training about Safety and Environment in additive manufacturing facilities organized by ISQ Academy.

This training was within the scope of SAM Project – Sectoral Skills Strategy for Additive Manufacturing. This a very interesting project that meets the current European need to develop an effective system to identify and aticipate the skills approriate to the demands of the various sectors in which AM technologies are applied.

What we learned allowed us to confirm and solidify the implementation of safe and environmental practices.

We want to thank ISQ Academy for this amazing opportunity. We hope to be together again very soon!
